Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
Before beginning this unit, explore websites that have Greek & Latin roots to become familiar with how the meanings of roots have influenced our languages.
Share some of these findings with your students to demonstrate how words relate to their roots.
Student Prior Knowledge:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
As students are working on this learning task, walk around the room, occasionally pointing out to students which roots they have correctly identified. This helps narrow down the ones they are still trying to match.
After students have had time to complete the activity, invite groups to share which roots they are confident that they have matched correctly. Provide encouragement and feedback as this discussion continues. Students can correct their own cards, thus allowing the students to learn from each other.
When all groups have the correct meaning by each root, have students share words that they used as they completed matching their cards. As a class, brainstorm other words that relate to their roots.
Distribute the practice assignment and List A (see attachments). Provide instruction as necessary to help students get started. Students can complete this assignment either individually or in small groups.
Weeks Two and Three
Strategies For Diverse Learners:
Struggling students can be strategically placed in groups so they can be encouraged, but not intimidated.
